The emergence of a new generation of writers in Assam has indeed brought forth new themes, ideas and writing styles, shaping the evolution of the Assamese literature. These changes have been influenced by factors such as globalization, social shifts and the exploration of individual freedom and identity. The "new wave" of Assamese literature that emerged in the 1970s marked a significant turning point. This movement emphasized the individual's experiences, personal freedom and the search for identity. Writers began to delve into the complexities of human psychology, introspection, and self-discovery. The short stories became more introspective, exploring the inner workings of characters' minds and their emotional journeys. Furthermore, the impact of globalization introduced new forms and styles of writing to Assamese literature. This paper attempts to study how Assamese authors began experimenting with innovative structures and techniques. They embraced the stream of consciousness technique, non-linear narratives, social realism and elements of magical realism. This experimentation added diversity and dynamism to the Assamese literary tradition, allowing for more creative and imaginative storytelling.
